Congrats! Jazz Jennings has been accepted to Harvard University — on her own! The 18-year-old took to her Instagram story to share the exciting news with fans, by showing off not one, but two awesome acceptance letters. “I’m stuck between Pomona and Harvard,” the teen confessed.

The best part? Fans will be able to see the play-by-play of Jazz’s decision-making process on I am Jazz, which was recently picked up for a sixth season “Find out what decision I’ll make on the next season of #IamJAzz on @ TLC,” she added to her IG story. This is an amazing accomplishment for the LGBT rights activist, whose life has been a difficult journey. This past June, the reality TV star underwent gender confirmation surgery, a procedure that essentially alters the genitals to resemble that of the gender in which she identifies.

Congrats Are in Order! Jazz Jennings Accepted Into Ivy League School Harvard

The brunette beauty totally deserved her acceptance, and even took to social media to prove so. Jazz confessed that she currently holds the number one spot in her class of 113 students, and has a 5.4 weight GPA. You go, girl! Clearly, however, that was just not good enough for the haters. Unfortunately, some social media users immediately attacked the South Florida native by stating that she only got into Harvard because of her gender and TV show. Don’t worry, she shut the trolls down fast, and stood up for her hard work and dedication. “Try to tell me I didn’t get in out of academic merit.  Yes, my advocacy and the show helped significantly, but my balance of that combined with my academic achievements is what ultimately got me admitted. I worked hard and I know that,” she wrote.

The TLC star is not the only one who is beyond excited about her acceptance — her brother is too! Sander, took to Instagram to give his sis an adorable shout out. “Congratulations to Jazz for getting into Harvard and Pomona. I am incredibly proud of you and excited to watch your flourish in the next stage of life. I love you and know you will make the best choice for YOU!” Aww, we are so happy for you, Jazz!
